Marquis Young was named the MAC East offensive player-of-the-week.

Dan Malone has a post on Young being named MAC player-of-the-week.

Young's 960 yards is the most for a true freshman since Steve Baylark. His 6.3 yards/game average just missed being one of the top-ten single season totals (Ron Brockington was #10 at 6.31 yards/game in 1996).

Thanks to a blog reader who alerted me to this Bleacher Report post on Sharpe.

Dan Malone looks at four losses that kept UMass out of a bowl game this year.

I think the turning point came in the Ball State game. UMass had a large number of injuries (including probably Frohnapfel) and was never the same.

Prior to the Ball State game Frohnapfel threw for:

225 yards against Colorado
393 yards against Temple
233 yards against Notre Dame
363 yards against FIU
409 yards against Bowling Green

After the Falcons:

171 yards vs Kent State
240 yards vs Toledo
259 yards vs Ball State
173 yards vs Akron
109 yards vs EMU
181 yards vs Miami (Ohio)
163 yards vs Buffalo
